Our Patience is Growing Thin

The Washington Post's Janine Zacharia captures very well the prevailing mood in Israel regarding the latest round of so-called sanctions being proposed at the UN based on some sort of agreement reached between the US, Russia, China and others, that came on the heels of the latest Iranian ruse, which involved Turkey and Brazil as well. In her article, she notes:

"
An Israeli security official recently complained of a muddled discourse on sanctions that has made the ultimate objective unclear: whether the Obama administration is trying to prevent Iran from getting a nuclear bomb or only to roll back its growing capabilities. Israeli officials have been seeking clarity from their American counterparts on what the U.S. plan is for preventing Iran from obtaining a nuclear device if sanctions fail."

It would indeed be nice to know what US plan is in place.
